The first image of Christopher Nolan's Oppeneheimer has been released. It is a black and white photo of Cillian Murphy with his cigarette in his mouth looking directly at the camera. Murphy will be starring in the film as J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb. The film will tell the story of Oppenheimer and how he created the atomic bomb. The film will release on July 21, 2023.
Oppenehimer is one of the most anticipated films of 2023 and it is easy to see why. The film has a star studded cast. The cast includes: Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Florence Pugh, Rami Malek, Jack Quaid, Benny Safdie, Dane Dehaan, Josh Harnett, and Kenneth Branagh. The film will be directed by legendary director Christopher Nolan and will be distributed by Universal Pictures.
This will be Nolan's first film after his divorce with Warner Brothers Pictures. Universal won the rights for this film in an intense bidding war. The reason Nolan left Warner Brothers is because of his latest release Tenet. Nolan has now found a new home with Universal Pictures and we'll see how long that relationship lasts.
Oppenheimer is expected to release in theaters on July 21, 2023.
